LSU Kicker Cole Tracey Explains He Was Suspicious Of Georgia Before Fake Field Goal


Some say Georgia lost the game at LSU the second Rodrigo Blankenship was taken down on a fake field goal attempt.

It was a play that the home team appeared to see coming from a mile away, and that may be true thanks to the expert mind-reading of Tiger kicker Cole Tracy.

Tracy noted that he knew something was off with Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship and holder Jake Camarda from the way they were communicating prior to lining up for the kick.

“As a kicker, you kind of look at things that people don’t look at,” Tracy said. “So I watched the kicker and the holder run on the field, and they were kind of looking back at each other and nodding. I thought to myself, ‘this is kind of weird, what’s going to happen.’”

Whether or not Tracy tipped off his teammates or coaches about the possibility of a fake is unknown, but LSU defensive back Grant Delpit was not fooled regardless, tracking Blankenship down quickly, forcing a fumble.

“Then sure enough, they ran a fake and then Grant (Delpit) made an amazing play,” Tracy said. “I remember watching it live, that’s one of the best plays I’ve ever seen.”
